Kendra Thomas

Assistant Professor of Psychology, University of Indianapolis

Kendra Thomas studies children’s and adolescents’ perceptions of justice and authorities, particularly in contexts of high inequality. Her curiosity on justice beliefs has led her to publish on a variety of topics such as parenting practices, school climate, relationships with authorities, and positive youth development. She is a frequent speaker at virtual teacher-training events on socio-emotional and moral development and works to improve and assess positive interventions in child and youth development in Brazil and South Africa.
